"The normally bustling, people-packed Market takes on a whole different persona after hours, which is worth the tour in and of itself!  As our guide led us through the empty market stalls and down through the inside lower levels of the Market she told us about the Market’s history, it’s unique features and those who helped shape it into what it is today. The Market and the surrounding buildings have some really incredible past history." - Clipper Vacations
